Bolton PTA has partnered with Apex Leadership Co to run a Walk-a-Thon at the school in the fall. This event is our primary fundraiser for the fall semester. The Apex program kicks off with a Pep Rally and concludes two weeks later with the Walk-a-thon, held outdoors when possible. During the two week program, leaders from Apex provide daily sessions on fitness and good character.
How does the Apex Program Work?
With parents’ help, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they complete at our Walk-a-Thon.
All pledges and payments are encouraged to be made online, but checks can be sent into the main office, if preferred.
Sponsors can pledge a $ amount per lap or any flat donation amount for students.
Students will walk for 30 minutes and will average 26-36 laps around the Apex loop.
The maximum laps counted is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. We’re raising funds for STEAM programs such as the BCS Robotics Club, Author Visits, Classroom Libraries, Science Museum Visits and more...
All Students Included
All students will receive Apex wrist bands, an Apex t-shirt/lap-counter, and team awards, and will be included in all activities connected with the Walk-a-thon, regardless of fundraising.
Why is the PTA Using an Outside Provider for this Event?
Holding an event like this Walk-a-Thon takes many hours of work by many people and we just don’t have enough hands to get it done without outside help.
The Walk-a-Thon has become the #1 fundraiser for the PTA since its first year in 2018, and the money raised has gone to important purposes in the school.
